Your best bet is to head over to Codepen.io and just mess around with manipulating elements on a page with GSAP.


There are a whole bunch of Pens that just play around with GSAP, and a good place to start is the basic Starter Pen:

To animate the text like GSAP's example banner you will need the SplitText plugin but that's a Club Greensock member's plugin.


You don't have to have a click to play animation. What Joey was pointing out is a super simple, bare bones pen that you can use as a starting point for your experiments.


To get started, you should go over the basics tutorials and explanations from GSAP and ScrollMagic. Then, you will be able create much of what you want and more.
